In the second preseason game, things get a little more exciting, as starters usually play for nearly a half, while with the first series of cuts looming in just over a week (rosters must be down to 80 by Aug. 27), the snaps become so much more important for the guys on the roster bubble.

FOXBORO -- While there’s always a bit of an edge at training camp -- the constant heat, humidity and crashing into the same guys over and over again would leave even the Dalai Lama short-tempered -- this summer, there’s been plenty of fight in these Patriots.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- If there’s any team that can handle a crowded receivers’ meeting room, it’s the Patriots.
Christopher Price

FOXBORO -- Whether he gets a chance to play out his entire career in a Patriots uniform or ends up finishing with another franchise, there will be a day when Tom Brady is no longer the Patriots’ quarterback. And with Brady turning 35 earlier this month, that day will come sooner rather than later.
Christopher Price
08/13/2012 - 12:56am
FOXBORO -- The sheriff has returned.
Christopher Price
08/11/2012 - 12:10pm
With one preseason game in the books, we've decided to take another stab at predicting the final 53-man roster.
Christopher Price
08/10/2012 - 3:13am
FOXBORO -- We’ll let Saints tackle Jermon Bushrod handle the superlatives.
Christopher Price
08/09/2012 - 1:05am
FOXBORO -- When it comes to the first game of the preseason, different players have different goals. While some rookies are just looking to get their feet wet, others will be tested to see how they do in their first relatively competitive action in the NFL.
Christopher Price
08/07/2012 - 11:15pm
FOXBORO -- We’ve been here before: High-powered NFL team gets enmeshed in scandal and receives massive penalties from the league. Meanwhile, critics doubt their success and ask whether or not it will prevent future glory.
Christopher Price
08/07/2012 - 6:55pm
FOXBORO -- Ferrari or Rolls-Royce? Godfather or GoodFellas? Five Guys or In-N-Out Burger? These are debates with no wrong answer.
Christopher Price
08/07/2012 - 12:33am
FOXBORO -- Prior to the start of camp, we took a look at five guys who were on the hot seat when it came to making the 53-man roster.
Christopher Price
08/06/2012 - 3:29pm
FOXBORO -- For the Patriots’ secondary, the low point of the 2011 season came when former New England defensive back Rodney Harrison went all Comic Book Guy (“Worst Secondary Ever”) on the group in December.
Christopher Price
08/06/2012 - 12:04am
FOXBORO -- The comparisons make a lot of sense: the 2012 Patriots have just as many talented skill positions players as the 2007 team.
Christopher Price
08/02/2012 - 11:50pm
FOXBORO -- Just over a month ago, we took a look at some of the positional battles we were most excited to see in Patriots training camp. Now, one week into camp, we take a look at how some of those battles are shaping up.

FOXBORO -- Stevan Ridley knows what’s going on, so when you ask him how badly he wants to be the Patriots’ No. 1 running back, he smiles. “Oh, man -- I think that’s every little kid’s dream, you know what I mean? I’m going to say pretty bad,” he said after practice on Sunday.
Christopher Price
07/29/2012 - 12:51am
FOXBORO -- Good news for Patriots fans: Even after three days of training camp, it’s easy to see that once you get beyond the number, there’s no comparison between Brandon Lloyd and Chad Ochocinco.
Christopher Price
07/27/2012 - 11:54pm
FOXBORO -- When it comes to rookie linebacker Dont’a Hightower, there’s the temptation to throw as much at him as quickly as possible.
Christopher Price
07/27/2012 - 1:14am
FOXBORO -- With apologies to George Costanza, the last few months have been the Summer of Gronk.
Christopher Price
07/20/2012 - 1:02am
It wasn’t a great day for the Patriots’ rookie class.
Christopher Price
06/28/2012 - 12:21am
No former Patriot-turned-analyst has been more inclined to put his old team on blast than Rodney Harrison.
Christopher Price
06/24/2012 - 3:15pm
For a team that went 13-3 and made a fifth Super Bowl appearance in 11 seasons, the Patriots will enter training camp in 2012 with a surprising number of options at several positions.

Last week, we presented 10 things we learned about the Patriots this spring. Consider this -- an absurdly early look at what the 53-man roster might looks like -- a companion piece is based on notes from the spring sessions.
Christopher Price
06/18/2012 - 12:03am
With the spring sessions now complete, a clearer picture of the 2012 Patriots is starting to materialize. With that in mind, here are 10 things we learned about the Patriots over the last month, a stretch that has included rookie minicamp, organized team activities and mandatory, full-squad minicamp.
Christopher Price
06/13/2012 - 11:44pm
FOXBORO -- Since he took over as the starting quarterback for the Patriots in 2001, Tom Brady has thrown passes to more than a hundred different wide receivers.
